If you're headed to PAX Prime in Seattle next week and you happen to the proud owner of a PlayStation Portable, fan of co-op Games, or just like donuts - the PlayStation Blog and IGN.com are putting on an event just for you!
Since moving to the PSP, Metal Gear has experienced a bit of an overhaul. With Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, the most notable change is the inclusion of up to four player co-op. Can Big Boss and his team of mercenaries co-op to save the world, or are we left a permanent state of Cold War tension?
There's two co-op releases this week both from long standing and popular franchises.
What happens you mix a well-known and loved co-op title with a well-known and loved title that just recently added co-op? One would presume the answer would be "a whole lot of awesome," and we certainly hope that proves to be the case. In a rather surprising reveal yesterday from Famitsu magazine, the latest entry in the Metal Gear Solid series, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker for the PSP, will include bosses from the popular dungeon crawler/MMO co-op franchise Monster Hunter. While it's great that Peace Walker will be integrating some very solid co-op experiences into the game, we must admit that mixing these two titles together is a rather interesting choice and one that we're certainly eager to try out. The crossovers and tie-ins don't end there, however, as Hideo Kojima had a few more interesting reveals today.
Come and knock on our door...we've been waiting for you...where the Bosses are Big, and Big, and Big...and there's a helicopter too!
Sony and Konami have announced a new limited edition green PSP bundled with the four player co-op Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker game. The bundle comes with a 2GB memory stick, download voucher for a movie off the PlayStation Network, and a unique piece of content for the game. The bundle weighs in at $199 and will be out when the game releases on June 8th.
Back in early February, we got word that the Japanese version of Kojima's latest entry in the Metal Gear Solid series, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, was delayed. Unfortunately, we didn't have any word as to what that meant for the U.S. release of this four player co-op "sneaking mission," so we were left to speculate if it would be May, June, or even later that. Well, Konami announced today that Snake and his buddies will finally be making their way to the U.S. on June 8th. What's more, the game will support the new adhocParty Mode, so you'll be able to get the drop on those enemy soldiers with your friends no matter where they may be hiding themselves.
“Snake…? Snakeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.” This is the sound of a million Metal Gear Solid fans when they hear the news that the latest in the series, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, has been delayed. Originally planned as a March 18th release in Japan, it has slipped by over a month to April 29th.
Despite the demo being around since the Tokyo Game Show earlier this year, if you didn't know Japanese, you were left out in the cold from understanding the demo for Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker. Now available for download on the PlayStation store as well as few sites scattered throughout the web, there's four missions to try in an updated version.
